Forum: etree Subject: Lets get some more bands!!!

Hey everyone,
I (like many of you) am a huge music fan and even though this site has so much to offer i'd love to see some more exciting bands up on the site.It would be great to have some drive by truckers, bad plus, mmw, mofro, North mississippi allstars, gomez, ect. So lets get out there and try to convert some bands,
Judah

p.s.I know the greatful dead are on the site so how come there's no dead, jerry garcua, ratdog, or phil lesh and friends?

What would also be cool is to get some shows for the countless bands that have said "yes", but still have 0 shows hosted on the Archive.

To get a concert from those bands that have said yes, would it help if they sent a physical tape to someone that would go through the process of making an shn/flac show out of it?

If there are any takers on this, then we might be able to approach other communities that are less familiar with the largely jam-band tradition.

"would it help if they sent a physical tape to someone that would go through the process of making an shn/flac show out of it?"

I would think so. I'd be happy to volunteer to convert a tape if there was a live recording of one of the bands and make .shn and put it up for sharing.

I think some of these bands that have said okay just have very little or unmotivated taper communities. Hopefully they all show up someday ...

Thank you, tyler, for volunteering. Maybe you (or if you prefer, we) could write to the band contacts and offer this service to them.

The first concert is the highest value to our users because it increases the breadth.

let me know if you would like to do this or let us.

Forum: etree Subject: Re: Lets get some more bands!!!

hey brewster... though i'm happy to do the converting, contacting them probably would be a task someone else might want to tackle primarily. I'll still e-mail those I can, all of us should be CC'ing eao and a note in the band details page so we can keep track of it. I just know I'm pretty busy so i wouldn't depend on me to be the primary contacter of the bands.

And I agree, the first show is the more important, as it widens the number of bands involved. I do have some shows already waiting to be converted from some of those '0 shows' bands, so i'll get those up soon hopefully.

So when writing we're just focusing on what exactly?
-Inquiring if a show (if any) exists for that band
-If the band would care to have a archive curator (me) convert the show to a loss-less medium and prepare it for the archive
-Pass on the instructions to them on how to do that (send them my mailing addy, etc.)

what else should we focus on during these contacts? I do have a feeling though, on some of these bands, there exist very few or even 0 live reocrdings, and the contact e-mail is either defunct or they are non-responsive. I tried a similar 'contact the bands with 0 shows' thing last year and out of 20 bands contacted, I received 0 responses of any kind. Here's to hoping we get more of these bands rolling on the archive!

Hey.. Jeremy, with Freak Speely here. I'd love to send some material to be converted. There is a guy that tapes our shows, and never seems to get the job done. Its sad when there are shows floating around, and I don't even get to hear them. My new email address is Jeremy@freak-speely.com. Someone contact me, and I'll see what I can do about getting something to be converted. Also, I tried once before and everything looked like it went ok, but it never showed up in the archive. Peace

Damien Rice will not get any shows put up because of a terribly restrictive taping policy. Go to the groove if you want some D.R.
